 ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -Lions running back Kevin Jones will get his first start of the season Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Jones missed the first two games of the season recovering from a foot injury, but has had at least 10 carries in each of the past two games.
``He's ready to go,'' Lions coach Rod Marinelli said Wednesday after practice. ``He's going to start.''
Tatum Bell has started each game for the Lions this season and his agent talked to them last week about trading him before Tuesday's deadline, which passed with him still on the team.
Detroit (3-2) hosts Tampa Bay (4-2) after a bye week that aided Jones' comeback.
``The break was good for my foot, and my body in general,'' Jones said. ``I feel healthier this week.''
